The Bedbug Traveler

bedbugTraveler is a word used for something that moves around a lot. Unfortunately, the particular traveler we are talking about is not a wanted guest.

With multiple ways to move from one place to another, the bedbug has become a traveler both across the United States and worldwide. This insect’s ability to squeeze into so many small seams and gaps makes it almost impossible to know one has hitched a ride with you. And the worst part about this traveler is that it is hardly even noticed until several weeks after you have returned from your trip.

Bedbugs love dark places until it is time to feed and can be found hiding in a bed, couch, chair, bus terminal seat, movie theater seat or any other location that someone can be expected to sit for an extended period of time.

The bedbug can sense the air a person blows out of their mouth or nose and follows this flow of carbon dioxide to their next meal. No, you can’t hold your breath and hope they will go away. These are persistent insects that will not leave even if you aren’t home for a few days or weeks. They will just wait for your return.

The only solution to a bedbug problem is to get to the source and start suppressing the bugs’ ability to feed. Closely follow a prep sheet on resolving the issue and contact Comfort Pest Control at 716-366-2120 and they will set up a plan that will solve the problem.

As they always say: Sweet dreams and don’t let the bedbugs bite!
